In some rather cool news, Martin Freeman is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

No details are known on his role just yet, but the actor will be appearing in Captain America: Civil War. Freeman, of course, is best known to genre fans for the likes of Sherlock, Fargo and heading up Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.

On the news, Marvel’s Kevin Feige said, “From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in The Office, Martin’s range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us. We couldn’t be more honoured or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

To be directed by the Russo brothers, Captain America: Civil War is set for a May 6th, 2016 release.
